and and saying that what are the differences going to be with hillary clinton gone and john kerry stepping in. we don't know what kind diplomat. >> hillary clinton is a rock star, i don't know if president obama used her to the fullest extent. she covered more countries over 100. and what we may see from john kerry is perhaps more focused diplomacy. certainly he has a lot of experience on the syria front. in the past he has worked, and i've written about this, as an informal envoy for the united states in afghanistan and elsewhere. and he'll be hankering for that kind of role where he can make a difference in some of these conflicts. there is a sense my sense from talking to people in washington is that president obama would like to pivot to asia but there is no doubt that he'll remain bogged down in one way or another in the middle east and north africa as we've seen in the past few days has become a major problem. that's where we'll see senator kerry head pretty soon. >> michael: let's talk about north africa, at least 35 people were killed when the islamists took hostage at the bp facility. is
disagree with. i also would suggest, once senator kerry gets confirmed for secretary of state, that he go to the region in the nearest possible time frame. he knows all the leaders there. he's known bibi netanyahu for 25 years, has a very close relationship with him, among others. and that in a nearer time frame after that, president obama go to the region, including israel, and take his own measure of the situation. it's pa reset moment, i think, for the region with israel as a player in the region, and for our policy to the region. >> i want to talk to you. you mentioned john kerry, the incoming secretary of state. he has called for a freezing of settlements, but he's also called for a two-state solution. how does he go to israel, netanyahu elected, at least in part, with the strong support of the right, who does not want that. how does john kerry go to israel, and to your point say, look, your future as a jewish democracy depends on you changing or breaking with some of the people who got you elected. how do you make that case? put yourself in his shoes. >> i wouldn't presume to tell b
, thank you. >> it's a pleasure. thank you for having me. >> and next, how will john kerry differ from hillary clinton as secretary of state? assuming he is confirmed. first, we caught up with singer john legend at the inauguration and asked what it is he wants to see from president obama in his second term. >> i think the next four years we still have to worry a lot about unemployment. unemployment is still too high, too many people don't have opportunities that need it, and i think that's something the president still needs to work on even though everyone is talking about the deficit right now. i think washington needs to be focused on getting more people back to work.

't want to go abroad. retreat is idea and policy of reseeding. with the nomination of john kerry and chuck hagel is president obama sending a chamberlain message? >> i think charles is right. he is sending the message. these are care-takers and people who will keep the foreign policy off his desk. some people say is part of the foreign policy part. climate change, and we know kerry will be deeply invested in. that has a real policy and dollars and cents. the rest is tabulum. the cabinet pointments are people to allow him to focus on this domesticbe transformation. >> bret: a leap forward for tomorrow. secretary clinton testifying on benghazi. she will testify in the morning on the senate side and afternoonbe in the house. this should be high drama when it comes to congress. asking and answering. the republicans are forecasting that. >> i don't know that they will be surprises in a lot of new revelations from the testimony. >> bret: charles? >> i think they will ask what did you know and when did you know it? where were you during the attackbe? what did the president say? who were the embas
for reelection. against john kerry, but voted by a small margin seem to believe bush should be the better theater cannot be with the vote reflected a favorable referendum on george w. bush's first term. the importance of the communication of a candidate cannot be discounted as a factor however. but all of this misses a different valuation of mayors being taken into account in judging between incumbent or obama and his challenger, and that rummy. that is the of the second term on so many presidents. only seven of 19 presidents elected to a second term avoided having a troubled or failed second term. i would give the country about a 30% chance of obama and the nation next. cnn improved security and economic climate. after four years if obama is reelected. i do not suggest the campbell should not be taken, simply that history playing with politics might give us pause. so what does history project about a second term for barack obama? where he reelect it was so few president having success at that time in office. what are the challenges that face those who had trouble or failed second term and what a
broadly, on national security, we will enter the beginning of confirmation hearings for john kerry as secretary of state, chuck hagel as secretary of defense. consideration of our military strategy, our military spending, how we project american power as we complete a winding down of the war in afghanistan. it is really going to be the end of a post-9/11 period in national security policy, with the policy going for it from there still unsettled. guest: the will still be a focus on the issues of national security, what just happened in algeria, the issue of al qaeda not being as weak a forceful as president obama campaign on. i think republicans will point that out. if we lost american lives again last week. so what are we doing to keep al qaeda at bay? that will be part of the discussion during the confirmation hearings and certainly with mrs. clinton's appearance tomorrow. host: on the issue of foreign policy, what will be president obama's legacy? where will the focus in his second term? guest: looking back over the first term, he did wind down the war in iraq. he's in the proces
. host: do his picks for the secretariat of defense statement that? guest: both will be confirmed. kerry is someone who the senators approve of more than secretary rice, who is controversial. senator kerry is much beloved by everyone on capitol hill. john mccain said he would endorse him. that will go through without controversy. both of these men will be confirmed easily. people think the secretary of defense choice is a signal that we will not be as aggressive as somewhat like in defending israel. host: minimum wage. do you expect those issues to gcome up>? guest: the campaign was focused on jobs. the relative lack of direct engagement with how you create jobs during the inaugural address. this was not a set of policy proposals. there will be more about this in the state of the union. it was striking that the focus of the campaign was not terribly reflected in the address he gave yesterday. as far as labor issues, a lot of this is going on in the states. there is a national political aspect to this. i do not know what plans they have for some of these issues. it was interesting yesterd
nominee, current senator from massachusetts john kerry. >> we're told that the president will soon sign the nominations. within a few minutes, i believe. john kerry and others. >> and jack lew about to become secretary of the treasury. rand cia chief as well as -- >> chuck hagel. >> you wanted to jump in? >> i guess i could come down in the middle of all of you. i agree with everyone. i think it was liberal speech as well. we talked about fdr all these things have to be seen in context. certainly barack obama is coming to the perhaps end of the reagan revolution compared to what we have had in the past. it was ringing endorsement. selectivism in a way takes on the notion of the takers, that whole idea very ideological. >> what else did you hear that was -- you were talking about thomas jefferson, what other reference did you hear? >> references to lincoln, he uses the declaration -- lincoln's appropriation of the declaration to talk about how we as a nation have to come together. i was very struck by this notion of unionism. these united states of america, not america's one nation
kerry getting ready -- john kerry is the chairman still of the foreign relations committee in the senate but he's recusing himself. he won't even be there. i think he's gearing up for his own confirmation hearing but bob menendez, he's going to chair these hearings. >> that's right. and this is an odd way for her to go out. but, yes, she's leaving this week. >> let's talk a little bit about you. today's your first day on cnn. about a month ago we saw you on another network. but what have you been doing the last month gearing up for this major new challenge in your life? >> a lot of gearing up, a lot of time with my children, jack and alice. and also, i have this new book that i wrote about afghanistan. >> best seller, i must say. >> it is a bestseller. >> "the outpost ", right there. >> one of the staff sergeants in that book, it was announced that president obama is going to award him the medal of honor in february. so i've been -- >> he's a central character in the book. >> he's a big character in the book and i've been preparing for that. we're going to have a party with him. i've bee
john kerry. eight years later, not one gay question came up. the gay issue never came up as a wedge issue, eight years later. i think that's also a great sign of progress how far this country has come on the issue of -- on the issue of gay rights in to toe, not just same sex marriage, but should gays and lesbians be treated equally under the law, as the president said in this is inaugural address and to add on something joe just said, i'm not sure in 2014 democrats in swing districts will be running away from the president's inaugural address, i'll be curious what the president says in his state of the union address, that's where he gets down to the nitty-gritty of policy descriptions for the country. >> one of the other quick moments, i was thinking about the defense of marriage act, the fact it's coming up before the supreme court and the president gave stonewall unprecedent ed mention in the inaugural address. you had story the other day in the "new york times" about a gay couple, two women soldiers in afghanistan, who needed post-trauma counseling and went -- their chaplains tol
senator clinton will testify before the senate with the kerry confirmation coming right behind. there will be a lot of focus on the state department and the systems and the internal accountabilities and, it feels to me, like a lot of this was because of just a state department that is stovepiped. it is almost full of sclerosis and unable to attend to the issues of security and make decisions that need to be made in this regard. i think you know --. bill: but with that, to that regard, senator. >> okay. bill: there seems to be this constant theme about folks in washington wanting to know whether or not she was aware on the decision-making as to whether or not adequate security was in place in benghazi. >> right. bill: is that not the heart of this? >> i don't think there is any question she will be asked that especially with some of the cables we've all known about from chris stevens and some of the concerns and the fact, you know, the first thing that people up here want to talk about, bill, is money. that is the very first thing that came out of the arb. that was really disurg
